In 2018, the amount of incentives for the implementation of measures related to energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES) in non-ETS industry amounted to just over EUR 46,000. Only Eco Fund incentives are considered in this amount, as the projects co-financed under the Operational Programme for the Implementation of the European Cohesion Policy in the 2014–2020 Period (OP ECP) are not prepared in such a way that the monitoring of effects related to climate targets would be possible, since also the set targets are not climate orientated.


The share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in non-ETS industry amounted to 16.4% in 2018. The share decreased for the fourth year in a row, this time by 12% compared to the preceding year. The decrease was a result of an increase in fuel consumption of almost 20% due to improved and expanded energy statistics for industry. The achieved RES share lagged 3.6 percentage points behind the indicative annual target value. If a similar downward trend continues in the future, the share of RES in 2020 will be more than 9 percentage points below the target.


Emissions of F-gases due to leaks from stationary equipment decreased in 2017 and 2018, namely by 9% and 20%, respectively, after increasing from 2014–2016. The decline is expected to continue in the future as a result of more intensive restrictions on placing F-gases on the EU market. The target value of the indicator from the Operational Programme for Reducing GHG Emissions until 2020 (OP GHG) is only indicative, as there have been several methodological changes since the adoption of the OP GHG.


The amount of landfilled biodegradable waste decreased rapidly up to 2013, after which the reduction stopped. In 2016 and 2017, as a result of upgrading the infrastructure for mechanical biological treatment of waste before disposal, the amount decreased significantly again, and in 2018 it was almost zero. In the period 2016–2018 the amount was significantly lower than the target in 2020. The main measures to achieve this reduction are separate collection of waste and mechanical biological treatment of mixed municipal waste.
